From the designer's perspective


posted on 21st of april, 2008

Last week, I was deeply involved in a project in my 'day job,' working on a presentation for a consulting client. I needed a few specific images to illustrate what I was trying to say. I checked out clip art, thought about looking on the web, and then I realized:

Dreamstime!

I logged in, did a few searches, and found a dozen terrific images. I put them all in a lightbox, then came back to them a bit later. They all still seemed appropriate, so I downloaded the most relevant. They fit into the presentation extremely well, not only jazzing it up visually, but also extending the points I was trying to make. The client was happy, I was happy, and I got to see Dreamstime from the other side of the table.

I havent been in this situation but I have been wondering what would make a photographer buy a stock photo instead of getting out their own camera and taking the picture themselves. One answer would be that the subject may be of a particular location thats difficult for the person to visit.
